    Excellent.

    You may be interested in proposals from the Kyoto2 Support Group describing potential benefits of “upstream” reform of the EU ETS:

    * “Turn off greenhouse gases at source” (PDF, http://bit.ly/1sBHsYj).

    * “Advantages of upstream controls on industrial greenhouse gases: summary” (PDF, http://bit.ly/1yfnBkc).

    * “‘Upstream’ reform of the EU Emissions Trading System” (PDF, http://bit.ly/1xUIJvV).

    A very helpful critical summary of where we are and how we got there.

    Dear Tina

    How very kind of you to write in this way.

    I can assure you that this summary was never intended to be regarding as hostile to the overall concept. Far from it. I have always believed that a carbon trading scheme could be a useful instrument (as per the UK Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme was originally conceived).as part of a portfolio of energy saving policies.

    What I object to is the way trading has been allowed to assume a primacy which is undermining the value of other, more provenly effective, policy options.
